Rosenberg first used LAK cells and IL-2 in humans in 1984 in patients with advanced cancer.
When they combined TIL with only 10 to 20 percent of the interleukin-2 needed with LAK cells and an immune system suppressor to fight off the body's attempt to get rid of the foreign cells, the researchers say they were able to "cure" mice with induced cancer.
Neither LAK cells alone nor interleukin-2 given at anything but near-toxic doses limit cancer growth.
